On Place d'Assézat in Toulouse stands the Assézat Mansion, a Renaissance gem that was entirely renovated in 1995 to house the Bemberg Foundation, created by an Argentinian patron.

The Assézat Mansion has been a listed Historic Monument since 1914, and offers a visitor trail about art in the West, from the late Middle Ages to the 20th century, displayed in this three-storey architectural gem inspired by the Louvre's square courtyard.

The first floor has a display of old works of art, paintings, furniture, bronze statues, art objects, and the main European schools of painting, with works by Cranach, Clouet, Le Tintoret, etc. showcased in a bourgeois house in the Renaissance style, as the Assézat Mansion was initially designed to be.

On the second floor are modern, Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works, by Manet, Picasso, Dufy, Vlaminck, etc. A whole room is dedicated to 35 paintings by Bonnard, and another is devoted to the Fauves.

The basement has a 200 m² space where public and private events are held.

To make the most of the inner courtyard, don't hesitate to stop by the tea room-restaurant open from April to October, which has a terrace beneath the loggia.
